Cleaning up the Me(t)ss: Alderson Must Revamp Medical Staff
 The Mets need a new, healthy look. (Really is this anymore idiotic an idea than the picture below?)

Now that that clubhouse cancer, Charlie Samuels, and that top step dancer, Jose Reyes, have each been taken care of, Alderson needs to turn his attention to more pressing matters. Yes, Sandy got the (moneyball) band back together. Now, everyone will be distracted by the manager search, but I say Alderson needs to start chopping with the medical staff. Ray Ramirez needs to go, whether the past 4 years of debacle are his fault or not.  Anyone that fails a pop quiz on how to deal with player concussions should be let go too.  And Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek too. Injuries are part of the game, but there is a medical malaise hanging over this team, and communication never seems to happen smoothly.

The whole Beltran thing. The whole Bay thing. The whole Reyes in LA thing. Catastrophic hammy roll-ups.  Etc. It's much to much bumbling to be a coincidence. Some fresh faced wellness czars.  Some healthy hot water bottle haulers. Some competent and communicative medical specialists. Hell, someone to give out celery and carrot sticks in the clubhouse. Take care of it, Sandy.

    IMFM, you are making an excellent point, which the blogosphere has been fairly quiet about the last couple of weeks, as has Alderson. Hopefully when he gets his ducks lined up in a row, he'll make giving the ax to these medical/trainer hacks a priority. Maybe they should line them up in a ceremony and get David Letterman to come over and chase them all away with a fire extinguisher, like he does with Richard Simmons (is that a photoshop or was he really at Citifield like that?).

    I have to assume that parties unknown photoshopped that picture. But i found it just like that in the wild.
